We wrote only last year “INDIAN TELEGRAPH hopes the future Royal Easter Shows will include multicultural segments reflecting a truly multicultural Australia.” 

Hence it was very exciting to learn about the India Pavilion in the Royal Easter Show this year at Showgrounds in Olympics Park. The Easter show website stated” visit the new Guest Nation Pavilion which, in 2016, brings together all the colour and spice of exotic IndiaExotic India, famous for colourful textiles, magnificent jewels, beautiful handicrafts and delicious food. And it’s all going to be at the 2016 Sydney Royal Easter Show”

There were more than 80 stalls in the India Pavilion attracting huge crowds.

Matt Evans, Sydney Royal Easter Show spokesperson, said there was something for everyone at this year’s Show.

“The Easter Show is Australia’s biggest celebration of the country right here on our doorstep. It’s where you can take an alpaca for an amble, watch super-speedy shearing, taste award-winning produce or roar with the crowd at the rodeo.”

“Once you step through the gates, there’s over twelve hours of amazement included in your ticket and Showgoers to be blown away by the line-up of amazing attractions and entertainment this year.” Mr Evans said

Headlining the evening entertainment and returning after a twelve-year hiatus was TheMan from Snowy River.  Back by popular demand, this dramatic new production of the beloved Banjo Patterson poem was an unforgettable highlight, with the thunder of over 80 animals storming Spotless Stadium in an electrifying performance.

Troy Cassar-Daley was also being performing nightly and the grand finale every night will be the Colors of the Outback Pyro musical, a spectacular fireworks display synchronized to a live, high-energy didgeridoo performance, a new Baby Puppy Competition, the world’s smallest rodeo bull, and over 800 free-range animals just waiting for a friendly pat at the Farmyard Nursery.

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events, Stuart Ayres said “the Show is an iconic Australian event, attracting thousands of domestic and overseas visitors every year.

The Show is a unique celebration of Australia’s agricultural excellence and has been delighting visitors in Sydney since 1823. The NSW Government is proud to support the Sydney Royal Easter Show through our tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW and I encourage everyone to book their tickets and get along to this wonderful event,” Mr Ayres said.

A NSW police dog has been awarded for his heroic efforts after locating a missing man in Maitland, in the Lower Hunter Valley region last year. Ulrich, a two-year-old German Shepherd, was selected as the inaugural recipient of the Service Dog Award in the 2016 Royal Agricultural Society Canine Hero Awards at this year’s Easter Show. Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove bestowed a medal and a certificate upon Ulrich’s handler Senior Constable David Wynne in the award ceremony.

Nearly one million people are expected to have attended the Royal Easter Show this year from 17th March to 30th April 2016.

The Indian Telegraph congratulates Royal Easter Show organisers and it is hoped that an “INDIA PAVILION” will be a permanent feature in the show.
